Bears' Rhule interviewed for Colts

Bears' Rhule interviewed for Colts

The Colts head coaching search continues but two candidates have removed themselves from consideration. Looks like he'll be sticking it out. They've quietly been building a nice recruiting class, now ranking as the No. 30 team for the 2018 cycle on Rivals.

Head coach Matt Rhule of the Baylor Bears reacts during the game against the Duke Blue Devils at Wallace Wade Stadium on September 16, 2017 in Durham, North Carolina. After interviewing with the colts, Rhule has made a decision to stay at Baylor.

Rhule was an assistant coach at Temple from 2006-2011 before landing back there as head coach in 2013.

Rhule, 42, was also the offensive line coach for the New York Giants in 2012. While Rhule doesn't have much in terms of head coaching experience, he is thought to be an up and coming offensive mind.

The lingering question hanging over the Colts is the health of quarterback Andrew Luck's throwing shoulder after he just missed an entire season.

It's believed the only offensive-minded candidates to interview at this point are offensive coordinators Josh McDaniels of the New England Patriots and Matt Nagy of the Kansas City Chiefs. Lauderdale, Fla. He also worked briefly with Al Golden, a former National Football League player, 4-year Miami Hurricanes head coach, and the current Detroit Lions Tight Ends Coach. But if Colts general manager Chris Ballard feels he'll have to go off the proverbial grid to find a head coach, interviewing Rhule fits that mode perfectly.
